Community adds DP8 Pendant loudspeaker

AUTHOR: Inavate

Community Professional Loudspeakers has expanded its Distributed Design Series of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers with the DP8 Pendant.

Available in (paintable) white or black, the DP8 is an 8in coaxial loudspeaker for restaurants, lounges, hotels, ballrooms, meeting rooms, retail and commercial establishments, and casinos, hotels and convention centres.

It has a weather-resistant enclosure, grille and components, so the DP8 may also be used outdoors in covered locations.

The DP8 features Distributed Design Series’ ‘Uniform Voicing’ design. Uniform Voicing is designed to provide an identical acoustic performance from all same-size pendant, ceiling and surface-mount loudspeaker models, in all spaces regardless of the loudspeaker type chosen.

This makes the D8 ceiling loudspeaker suitable for integration in a low-ceiling party room, or the new DP8 pendant suitable for a large open-architecture space and the DS8 surface-mount model for an outdoor patio in a restaurant, lounge or hotel.

The DP8 achieves its Uniform Voicing by acoustical design by sharing its transducers and crossover network with the Distributed Design D8 ceiling loudspeaker and DS8 surface-mount loudspeaker.

The DP8’s shared coaxial transducer features a separate compression driver coupled to Community’s proprietary Tru-Phase waveguide and mounted to an 8in woofer with Community’s patented Carbon-Ring Cone technology.

For system designers and installers, the DP8 is ETL listed to comply with UL1480. It includes a 120-watt autoformer with tap switch for 70-volt/100-volt distributed systems and features a suspension and wiring system inside its integrated rear cover.
